You may remember Crazy Dan, who was 86'd from Sidewalk Cafe for his behavior in a blackout "There must be some mistake!" he cried, but there wasn't. He's since found out that on the night he doesn't remember, he was with his flight attendant friend Miss Mimi.
Miss Mimi is a wild thing who wears the same skimpy outfits she did at 20, even though she is now 40. Usually they are flimsy bright colored spaghetti strap dresses that barely reach the upper thigh. She is so wild and in-your-face that people think she's either a) a hooker, or b) a drag queen. Miss Mimi is neither, she is just one bodacious black woman. We love her.
Turns out that on the night in question, Miss Mimi and Crazy Dan were in Sidewalk Cafe, completing a heavy night of drinking. Apparently they weren't being served fast enough.
Miss Mimi moved her neck: "Where's our drinks?"
Waiter: "We can't serve you anymore"
Miss Mimi: "Get the mollasses out your ass, and get our drinks!"
Waiter: "I'm sorry, but you're going to have to leave."
According to Crazy Dan's source (a horrified witness), at this point Miss Mimi stood on top of the booth, pointed a long red fingernail and screamed, "Is this because I'm black?!"
Crazy Dan slammed his fists on the table to join in. "This is racial!"
The wait staff threatened to call the police, and Miss Mimi retorted, "I'll call the motherfuckin police myself!" and she got out her phone to dial 911. Crazy Dan, in his drunken fog, stood up on the booth, too, shouting "Martin Luther King!" which got Miss Mimi all the more excited. "Martin Luther King stood his ground," she howled, "I'm standing my ground too!!"
They both stood their ground until the police indeed showed up.
Then they peeled themselves from the furniture and ran.
Crazy Dan says he'll try to sneak back into Sidewalk Cafe around summertime when "they've forgotten me." Since the events of that evening, Miss Mimi has escaped back to Las Vegas where she is based. Presumably, she can be found standing her ground on the strip.
